Diabetes is often called a silent killer that affects the overall functioning of the body gravely. It gradually causes serious complications leading to heart problems, kidney damage, vision-related issues and other concerns.
Dr. BM Makkar, Senior Diabetologist, President RSSDI says, “Sometimes these symptoms are so subtle that it becomes difficult to distinguish them from others. For this reason, it becomes all the more essential to be acquainted with the symptoms associated with diabetes.
The most significant warning sign for diabetes in the morning is dry mouth. If you experience dry mouth or feel extremely thirsty right after waking up in the morning often, then consider it an alert to diabetes and get your blood sugar levels checked immediately.
Signals that trigger in the morning due to heightened blood sugar levels are nausea. It may happen as a result of complications from diabetes or other conditions. Most of the time, nausea is harmless and very momentary.
If you get a blurry vision when you wake up in the morning, you must quickly check your blood sugar levels. Diabetes may also cause the eye lens to enlarge, which could result in hazy vision. Your eye’s lens may change shape and your vision may become blurry.
Damaged nerves can result from high blood sugar (glucose). The nerves in the legs and feet are most frequently affected by diabetic neuropathy. Diabetic neuropathy symptoms can range from tingling and pain to numbness in the hands, feet, and legs.
